KLE 500 front hub oil-seal advice
« on: January 23, 2018, 01:36:07 pm »
Need some advice on the replacement part of the front hub oil-seal. The original is 42x55x7.5.
The shops in my area do not carry ....x7.5. Bit concerned about the 0.5mm gap if the seal is not seated flush.
Can the oil-seal be replaced with a 42x55x7.0?

A seal that is 0.5mm narrower should not make any difference at all..
